  •  I welcome the criticism. (0+ / 0-)

    I do think it's easy to overgeneralize and take things too far when talking about this kind of thing, and it would probably be more accurate to say that some of these traits are stronger in some people while others are stronger in others. I don't actually believe that there is "one" single kind of authoritarian conservative. However, I do believe that political ideology and beliefs are very much determined by psychology. I think it's worth discussing, and I welcome criticism of my ideas. You did make me think about some ways that I could strengthen my arguments.
